INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari has
landed another high-profile point guard to his collection.
Indiana high school star Marquis Teague verbally committed to
the Wildcats on Thursday, opting to join the Wildcats over
Louisville and Indiana among schools.
Teague is ranked the No. 2 player in the Class of 2011 by
Rivals.com. He can't sign a letter of intent until the fall at the
earliest, but if he signs with the Wildcats he will join a steadily
growing list of elite point guards who have agreed to play for
Calipari, a list that includes Derrick Rose and John Wall.
Teague averaged 15.7 points and 4.6 assists for Pike High in
Indianapolis, and his combination of size and athleticisim have
made him a coveted recruit.
Teague said he was leaning toward Louisville early in the
recruiting process before choosing Kentucky after the Wildcats
hired John Calipari last spring.
